I decided to start knitting again, after a hiatus of many years, and am working on a “hoodie”. Big mistake, not only is it taking ages to do, as it’s for a XXL sized MAN but it’s all boring ol’ stocking stitch. However, I can see the finish line in the distance now as I’m galloping towards the end of the final bit, the hood. When I started the hood (after completing the front, back and two sleeves) I thought - thank god, I’m nearly there … only to discover it’s quite wide AND about 85 cms in length (which is 33 inches) … AND I’ve just realised I’m about two balls short and coming to the end of my last one, silly me, but eBay to the rescue.
So, I vow, to thee, my next project will be something smaller, considerably smaller, er, like a vest.
My project news, that’s all - fairly boring to all I assume. But fun for me.
